"In 2062, the people of Terra discovered the Blue Matter System. With the help of this new technology, they decided to explore the galaxy in search for signs of intelligent life... One of these astronauts has been wandering through space during 4 years, and finally landed on a moon with no name, where a mysterious man used to live alone. Boïnihi was his name, and he was a solitary Talifan who had luckily survived to the terrible events of Day Zero, long, long ago..."

Boïnihi: The K’i Codex is, in the pure tradition of the Black Cube series, an exploration game where solving puzzles requires observation and learning the codes of the world. Created by Simon Mesnard (ASA, Catyph, Myha...) and magnified by an oriental-sounding music composed by Yazorius, Boïnihi has a gameplay never before seen in the series, halfway between Myst-like and traditional adventure games.

I'm very happy to announce the release of Boinihi: The K'i Codex, a scifi adventure that can remind of Syberia, Myst and other games of the genre with prerendered 3d graphics.

In Boinihi, you control a solitary astronaut on a faraway moon, and have to investigate about mysterious yellow ghosts and a manuscript Codex written in an unknown language. You'll have to decifer it with the tools you find during your quest, in order to understand the past of this world, and try to get back to your home world...

Boinihi is now available on Steam for $19.99 in English and French (Windows only).
Coming to itch.io drm-free soon. L

Release Trailer of Boinihi:


I'm Simon Mesnard, a French indie dev who works at home with 3dsmax and Visionaire Studio. Boinihi is my 4th game in a series started in 2011 called The Black Cube (you can play each episode independently: ASA, Myha...). I made everything in Boinihi on my own, between 2016 and 2020. The music was composed by French artist Yazorius. Starring Klemens Koehring (Dark Nights with Poe and Munroe, JULIA: Among the Stars) as the voice of the Hero Astronaut and Boinihi.

Several bonus files are included in the game's folder: mp3, video, comic book...

I really hope you're interested and will want to play Boinihi!
